If you’ve seen the new movie “Pitch Perfect“, you know that actress Alexis Knapp is a scene stealer. She sat down with Just Jared (via Celebrity Baby Scoop) to chat about everything from her background as a dancer and singer to life as a working single mom.
Alexis, who is mom to Kailani, 15 months, shares how she juggles being a working mom, “There is no perfect balance. As a young, single working mother with a sporadic and intense schedule, you take on each day as they come, and hope to be the best mother you can possibly be. I break my back for my daughter, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Alexis credits her stint in the movie Couples Retreat for giving her the acting bug. “I grew up with extensive and very serious classical training in dance, (ballet was core), musical theatre and opera singing, instruments (piano, flute, violin). Always knew I’d be performing, just could never settle on a skill. I fell in love with acting when I became fortunate enough on set of the film Couples Retreat to be bumped up from a featured extra to actual lines and got to improv with some of the stars. That’s where I caught the bug. There are no known cures at this time..”
Alexis dishes on her newest project, Cinnamon Girl, ” I begin filming my pilot Cinnamon Girl at the end of this month. This is hands down the most anticipated project I’ve ever been a part of. It’s a period piece set in the 60′s/70′s of Hollywood. I play the actress of the show, Lola Jones. I’m more excited than words can simply express, I wish I could share more. Then I’ll be doing a film in NYC called Julia. I play her, a shy and sheltered rape victim who reincarnates into an unstoppable killing machine. That will be unlike anything I’ve ever done before, cannot WAIT to start handling knives. Always been a tad obsessed with weaponry. I own a Katana at home!”
Have you had a chance to see “Pitch Perfect” yet? We finally saw last night and loved it. Alexis is hilarious in it!
